The award is annually bestowed upon individuals or organizations that have shown special endeavour for the remembrance of the crimes of national socialism and thereby set a sign regarding the universality of this injustice.
The award ceremony is typically conducted in cooperation with the local Gedenkdiener and the Austrian embassy of the host country.
